My vintage moo-moo

Dress & earrings: vintage // shoes: sportsgirl // belt: forever new

Have you seen the episode of the Simpsons were Homer decides to put on weight so he can work from home and swans around in a moo-moo? This my friends is my moo-moo because lets be honest without a belt it has as much shape as a heshen sack. I do love it though and it such a light and breezy material, maybe some sort of polyester blend. To be honest alot of my vintage dresses are this material and so good for Summer, not enough dresses are made of this material anymore.

I bought this dress from a Vinnies store in Newtown, there was also another dress I fell in love with there but it was unfortunately too big to justify buying, I hope its gone to a good home because it was beautiful.

I only have three more days left of holidays which is slightly depressing. I love my work but I love being on holidays even more. I slept in this morning and than went out for lunch and shopping for a friend. I stuck to my resolution and didn't buy anything except a new bedspread which I bought with a gift card from christmas, woo hoo!

  5. It's so pretty! I can never find pretty things like that when I'm out thrifting. Maybe I just need to learn to be more creative!

    I love your goals for 2012. As for the book challenge button you should get one :) You have to join up with goodreads to get that particular one (which I think you should). x
